WMO STRATEGIC PLAN & OPERATING PLAN Docs. 7.2(01) & 7.2(01) ADD.1 EC-LXII, 8-18 June 2010, Geneva, Switzerland

2 Topics Introduction WMO strategic planning framework
Global Societal Needs Purpose and Context of SP The Structure of SP WMO OP Conclusion

3 Introduction

4 Introduction Decadal trends in natural hazard impacts over the five last decades showing decreasing loss of life (left panel) and increasing economic losses (right panel) associated with hydro-meteorological hazards

5 Introduction. Examples of efforts to address
the challenges 1961 1978 1990 2009 Improvements in anomaly correlation of 500hPa height forecasts

6 Introduction: Need for continued efforts
Despite the progress in improving services, more societies are increasingly vulnerable to natural hazards and national economies are becoming more sensitive to climate variability and change as evidenced by the greater frequency and intensity of climate extreme events. There is a need to improve weather, climate, water and related environmental services as well as communications and emergency response activities, particularly in developing and least developed countries (LDCs), Small Island Developing States (SIDS), and other vulnerable countries.

9 Global Societal Needs Global Societal Needs
Improved protection of life and property (related to impacts of hazardous weather, climate, water and other environmental events and increased safety of transport on land, at sea and in the air; Poverty alleviation, sustained livelihoods and economic growth (in connection with the Millennium Development Goals) including improved health and social well-being of citizens (related to weather, climate, water and environmental events and influence); and Sustainable use of natural resources and improved environmental quality. Mission- the purpose statement in the WMO Convention Vision- Provide world leadership in expertise and international cooperation in weather, climate, hydrology and water resources, and related environmental issues, and thereby to contribute to the safety and well-being of people throughout the world and to the economic benefit of all nations.

10 Achievements The achievements of WMO include:
(a) Free and Unrestricted Exchange of Meteorological and Related Data and Products; essential for all real time weather, climate, water and related environmental services together with the assessment of the evolution of the climate system; (b) International Standards for Meteorological and Related Observations ensuring high quality and intercomparability of data – a vital feature for detecting climate change and developing global weather and climate models and related services; (c) Capacity Building - in NMHSs throughout the world; (d) Promoting Science and Technology – transforming leading edge research into useful products and services; (e) International Leadership - recognized leader in the UN System with respect to the monitoring and prediction of weather, climate, water, and related environmental conditions.

11 Future Services to address GSNs
With global societal needs escalating, future weather, climate, water and related environmental products and services will require significant targeted improvements to: (a) Provide user targeted timely, accurate and cost-effective products and services; (b) Provide and promote the use of products and services in addressing the challenges of adaptation to climate variability and change; (c) Enhance the effectiveness of their services and lower costs by promoting cooperation and partnerships nationally and internationally; (d) Enhance the visibility of its Members and their activities by more fully participating in international programmes and conventions; and (e) Assist countries in translating commitments, agreed within the framework of global conferences, summits and international conventions, into effective and practical measures.


13 Priority Areas Global Framework for Climate Services;
Aviation meteorological services; Capacity Building for the developing and least developed countries; Implementation of the WMO Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS) and WMO Information System (WIS); and Disaster Risk Reduction

14 STs, ERs, KO’s , KPI’s and Priority Areas linkage
ST2: Advancing scientific research and application as well as development and implementation of technology Has three Expected Results (ER 3, ER 4 and ER 5) ER 3: Enhanced capabilities of Members to produce better weather, climate, water and related environmental information, prediction and warnings to support in particular climate impact and adaptation strategies(4KOs) ER4:Enhanced capabilities of Members to access, develop, implement and use integrated and interoperable surface-based and space-based systems for weather, climate and hydrological observations, as well as related environmental observations, based on world standards set by WMO(3KOs. ER5:Enhanced capabilities of Members to contribute to and draw benefits from the global research capacity for weather, climate, water and environmental science and technology development(5KOs) Priority areas within ER’s: ER3-GFCS(Climate Services information System, Climate User Interface Programme) ER4(WIGOS, WIS and GCOS)

15 Key Performance Indicators Contributing Programmes
ER4: Example of a detailed description of ERs Key Outcomes Key Performance Indicators Contributing Programmes KO 4.1: WMO Integrated Global Observing System is implemented Completion of WIGOS milestones according to WIGOS implementation plan Increased availability of observations for users World Weather Watch Programme World Climate Programme-Global Climate Observing System (WCP-GCOS) Atmospheric Research and Environment Programme WMO Space Programme Hydrology and Water Resources Programme Applications of Meteorology Programme KO 4.2: WMO Information System is developed and implemented Implementation of WIS by NMHSs with continuous access to observations and products to meet the needs of the NMHSs and national users and to enhance capabilities of Members to access data and products Enhanced capabilities for data processing and management KO 4.3: Accessible climate observations and climate data archives at the NMHSs and global data centres are increased Progress in implementing the Global Climate Observing System Increase in projects to rescue and digitize climate data, to improve the use and exchange of high quality climate data sets and to assess the state of the global climate system Number of Members developing and implementing modern climate monitoring systems, including Climate Watch Systems World Climate Programme

16 WMO Operating Plan 2012-2015 Doc. 7.2(01) ADD.1

17 WMO Operating Plan Based on SP 2012-2015 and informs RBB and M&E
Has activities from RAs, TCs and Secretariat More input needed from TCs and RAs Guidance needed on further development

18 Summary Approval of the draft strategic plan for forwarding to all Members with the Budget Proposal Approve the forwarding of a sample of the Operating Plan to CG for endorsement and make available to all management groups and EC members Provide guidance on preparation of the next strategic plan (2016 – 2019 and beyond)
